    Just recently my laptop (Dell 6000) has taken about 15 seconds longer than usual for me to actually start accessing programs when I start up.

    Most noteably is MSN Messenger. At least three times a day, the windows will not respond, or open up when I click them from the taskbar. It will act as if I never clicked it, and a simple fix is by RIGHT clicking it for it to respond. It just hangs like I never touched it. I'll constnatly be having to rightclick the window or taskbar window for it to start responding.

    Any ideas on what is wrong?

    Have you run anti-spyware programs?

    How many services run on your laptop? The more things that load on startup the slower it will be.
